Healthy Prawn Soup

Among all the seafood prawn is the most popular in all most every part of the world and so it is in my family. In my childhood days jumbo prawn was my favorite as it is not only tasty but easy to eat. Maa (Mom) use to do all the hard work, devein it and take the shell out, it is only the delicious juicy flesh that we have to eat. Don’t you think that child hood are the most precious time where we can live a worry free life with two loving angels our Mom And Dad by our side! ………. If I start walking down the memory lanes, I will start missing my Dad so much that tears will drop down in my key board and I will not be able to share a very good recipe of delicious and healthy prawn soup which I prepared a day before, for dinner. No more words but a good healthy delicious prawn soup recipe that is very light and easy – A comfort food for you.


King Prawn   3 to 4 (deveined and peel leaving the tail on)
Bell peppers 
red and yellow   4 table spoon  finely chopped
Garlic         2 table spoon finely chopped
Corn starch    1 1/2 table spoon
Vegetable oil    2 table spoon
Monosodium glutamine  2 pinch (optional)
Sugar      1/2  teaspoon
Salt and pepper    to taste
Lemon    1 juice ( or to taste)
Water or chicken stock  3 cup
Cilantro   hand full chopped
Glass noodles  1/2  cup ( cooked as per package instruction)

Today to make the soup I am using a bit different technique . First wash the prawn well then marinate this prawn with salt pepper, lemon juice, a pinch of monosodium glutamine, little bit of sugar and corn starch for 2 to 3 minutes now steam this prawn in a oil brushed steamer for 3 to 4 minutes or till done.
Heat oil on a pan . Give chopped garlic stir add the chopped bell pepper. Stir and then pour the stock . Let it boil . Season it with salt and pepper , sugar and pinch of monosodium glutamine and chopped cilantro. Now take a small bowl mix cornstarch with 4 table spoon of soup that you are cooking , let it mix well otherwise it will form lumps , then pour it in the soup. Let it boil for another 2 minutes then add lemon juice. Put off the flame . Now in individual soup bowl place the cooked glass noodles then the steamed prawn and now ladle the soup. Serve immediately. Your delicious prawn soup is ready. I hope you will like this healthy soup recipe.
